Hi F05 error code means power inverter board failure. The invert board is the main power board which controls the microwave. When you get this code its nearly always the inverter board that causes this.To fix this it will need the board replacing. Now fixing microwaves isnt the easyist thing if you havent done them before as microwaves are very dangrous even when unplugged as they can hold up to 4500v so it must be discharged before touching anything in there other wise it can throw you across the room so please be aware when checking microwaves out. But to fix this im afraid the inverter board will need to be replaced. If you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
